How To Set Night Light On Windows 10


If you are like me, you use your computer at night, especially when the children finally go to bed and there is finally some free time. When we use our computer at that time, we normally have the lights off or low– hoping to keep the kids from waking up. Unfortunately, the screen can be very bright when the other lights aren’t on and this can be hard on your eyes and make it harder to get to sleep after a long time staring at the screen at night. If you didn’t know, Windows 10 has a Night Light mode. What this does according to Microsoft is this:

Sleep Better – Night light can help you get to sleep by displaying warmer colors at night. Select Night light settings to set things up.

I know there must be some science behind this but all I was interested in is reducing the annoying brightness of the monitor to keep my eyes from getting any worse (I wear glasses already!). If it will help me get some sleep, then even better. Time to show you how you can set up your night light.

Step 4: Now you should be on the Display section. If not, look to the left and click on the Display option. Once you are here, you will see the Brightness option at the top and right below that should be the Night Light switch. Click the switch to turn it ON. Once you have done that, make sure to Click the Night Light Settings right below the switch because I think you all deserve to know more…

Step 5.1: Also, you can schedule when the night light will turn on and off, which I find to be the best way to use this feature. All you need to do is click the schedule switch and set your times up. After you are done adjusting everything, there is nothing else to do but enjoy your sleep.
